EMBL Conference

Quantitative biology to molecular mechanisms


A funding application to EMBO is in progress for this event. This conference will take place at EMBL Heidelberg, with the option to attend virtually.

Registration is not yet open for this event. If you are interested in receiving more information please register your interest.

Conference overview

Genomics, proteomics and quantitative imaging are rapidly moving fields with technological innovations and new biological insights occurring on an almost monthly basis. For example, mass spectrometry-based proteomics is now able to quantitatively assess close to 80% of the proteome which can nowadays be obtained from very low cell numbers. An even greater jump in sensitivity has recently revolutionized genomics with the rapid spread of measurements at the resolution of single molecule and single cells. Development of new methods and instruments has led to the emergence of high content quantitative microscopy, that enables quantification of dozens of phenotypic readouts in single cells.

A common feature of all these techniques is their ability to generate large amounts of high-resolution quantitative data characterizing biological systems at scales ranging from molecular to organismal level. A topical challenge is to convert this data into predictive quantitative models of biological systems. This meeting builds on the established ‘functional genomics to systems biology’ meeting and is a venue for scientific leaders to discuss their data beyond their field and promote the emergence of ideas and concepts to bridge the gap between technologies and scales to model complex biological systems.

What past participants say about the conference

“Attending this conference revealed ideas of methods and tools that can be applied by my team in some aspects of our planned future research. The conference organization and execution skills surpassed the expectation I had of an EMBL event. Thank you for this great experience.” – Joy Ehiwuogu-Onyibe, Federal Institute of Industrial Research, Oshodi (FIIRO), Nigeria

“A very beautifully organized virtual conference with excellent presentations in a professional environment that encourages young researchers!” – Muhammad Nisar Ali, Nigde Omer Halisdemir University, Turkey

EMBL wishes to warn sponsors of EMBL conferences and courses of fraudulent schemes purporting to offer sponsorship opportunities on behalf of EMBL or affiliated with EMBL officials. One current scam campaign of which we are aware is conducted using the name ‘Judy Eastman’ (judy@gopcontact.a2hosted.com) and entails approaches to sponsors offering sponsorship opportunities on EMBL’s behalf. Please be kindly advised that all relevant communication regarding sponsorship of EMBL conferences, symposia and courses is handled by EMBL directly and is sent from an official EMBL account. EMBL does not work with any external providers on sponsorship acquisition.

Please also note that:

  • EMBL never provides attendee lists for purchase. Any offers of such are fraudulent.
  • EMBL will never call or email you to ask for your credit card details or to request a payment.
  • All payments are on invoice.

Suspicious communications purportedly from, for or on behalf of EMBL should be reported to EMBL at the following email address sponsorship@embl.de.
